A lesson learned, and music on monday August 27, 2007

Some things in life you can only learn by experience. Do you remember growing up, how good the taste of candy was? I know I did. Pure and unadulterated were those days. But after a while you get a stomach ache, or perhaps a tooth cavity, and you begin to realize that something which could taste so good might not actually be so great for you after all. One of the greatest gifts in life is that God does not give us all the things that we want. Think about that for a moment. In His sovereign love He sees what we cannot…that what we selfishly desire is not best for us, in the long run. Have you ever wanted something so bad you’d do anything for it, only to realize sometime later that which you so longed for would have made you miserable down the road? That which you were so blinded into believing was the best, was actually the worst in disguise. This is such an important lesson, one that only can be learned through heartache and disappointment. Sometimes we can be such fools. Thankfully, in the end, God has His best in store for each and every one of us, no matter how hard we try to screw things up and run away from Him. Have a great week.
